An intraocular lens was luxated into the vitreous cavity. To suture the lens in the sulcus we developed our own surgical technique with no need to take the lens out of the eye and exchange it.


The surgical steps performed were: vitrectomy, perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) instillation, extraction of the haptics through the sclerotomies, suturing of the haptics and re-introduction into the vitreous cavity, re-suturing of the haptics in the sulcus with scleral flap preperation and removal of PFCL at the end of procedure.

Effectiveness / Safety:

The effectiveness of this procedure is high since we protect the retina with the PFCL and avoid anterior segment manipulations.
